DOG TAG FOUND IN HAWAII
thank you for responding John, I will send you a picture of it and here is the information you requested...

Shane a lady reached out to me she found this 44th BG fliers dog tag on a beach she wants to try to find descendants to give it to any help?
FORREST E. BARTAY
384L0822
It was found on the beach in Hawaii. Sand Island beach park on August 12, 2016.

I did look up his name and I did not see any surviving next of kin, so I just want to have it go to someone and someplace that it will be valued and appreciated. And maybe this dogtag might have a bigger story than meets the eye, so I am also curious but don't know how to look it up.

If you would like me to send it to you, I can surely do that. I would ask if you would kindly share any interested facts that you find so that I can have stories to tell the grandkids.

RE: Charles Steinbach
The Find A Grave volunteers have a very good relationship with the woman who runs the office and the grounds keepers. If she is not talking to a family member she always takes the time to look up our requests. They are all on computer by name. I came in with ten requests this week and she had info on seven. I'll keep Charles Steinbach in my notes and maybe we'll find it someday.

Newspaper article about "FindAGrave"
On Monday, 8 August 2016, the Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper published an excellent story about a FindAGrave volunteer, and others.
I would like to send you a copy. It covers parts of 2 pages, with color photographs.

How can I get this to you?

You were the one who located my first cousin, Gordon F Anderson's grave in Golden Gate National Cemetery. Thank you again.

RE: WWII KIA's
Here is a virtual cemetery for the men who's name is inscribed on the memorial in Mt. Ephraim:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=651390

One man, James Busey was accidentally added. Actually, his father, Samuel was inscribed on the memorial as he lived in Mt. Ephraim and was the point of contact for his son. Somehow things got mixed up. James was from the Washington D.C. area.

I also wrote and posted stories for several of these men on Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/jeffvilardo/posts/10207910776239909

and one more that I posted later on:
https://www.facebook.com/jeffvilardo/posts/10208032605845573

I have tried to put together a life story of sorts for each person and post it on Facebook on the anniversary of their death. Still a work in progress.

Regards,
Jeff Vilardo

ShaneO, it's not a memorial that I created but you added the application for the gravestone, but is it the right location, please? Regards, Martin.

RE: Arthur Nixon group
Good Morning Shane!!
I added the photo to the Gudger memorial. Do you think I should add the picture to the others while the older photo is still there?
As a curiosity, do you see my photos upright or sideways? I see them all upright on whatever device I am using, but I've been told some of them appear sideways to others.
Hope you are well! :-) A

Comeal Andrews is my Grand-Uncle, the brother of my Grandfather. He is buried in Crystal Springs Cemetery, located in Washington Parish, Louisiana. Thank you for honoring and remembering him. I am planning to visit in 2016 and will be stopping at that cemetery to get headstone photographs. We have several family member buried in that cemetery.

RE: Edward Novak #154179232
Yes that is the same Edward Novak listed on the memorial at Greenwood Cemetery. I have found out that the memorial is everyone from the area who died in the war but not necessarily buried there. So will you be deleting the other Edward Novak from Greenwood. There is another Edward Novak who served in WW II and is buried in Swan Lake but he survived the war. I was walking Greenwood today and found a headstone I didn't know if you had I will upload if you don't the inscription told of this person being captured at the Battle of the Bulge and died somewhere in Germany. It's for PFC. Charles A. Lubke do you have a memorial for him?

Corp. Harry Rudolph Anderson
Dear Shane, I want to thank you for being out there and doing what you doI stumbled upon your website and there was my father..I still have the telegram listing him as missing in action. The last letter he wrote my mom said he couldn't tell her where he was, but that it would all be over soon and he would be coming home to usMy mother lost contact with his family and I had 3 pictures and stories to tell me who my dad was. I always intended to go to Minnesota and find my "roots". Time passes, work, family, stuff gets in the way and I never made that trip..Now that I am in the December of my life it's funny how one wants to complete things..going through some old files, my fathers birth certificate was still in the small brown envelope, along with the telegram. This led me to looking up May 27,1945, the date on the telegram, and Tinian where he was listed as missing in action. After seeking different squadrons with names listed..I just typed in Harry Rudolph Anderson and there you were with a picture of my Father I had never seen..thank you for giving me another glimpse of my history. Sincerely, Cheryl Ann Anderson..Larkin

Shane thank you so much for keeping these men's memories alive in so many ways. My husband and I truly appreciate you. I sponsored Buddy's page so there will not be ads on it anymore. He deserves that. Also it will allow me to add more photos which I've been able to get some from his nieces. Thank you again and my God Bless you and your fellow comrades.

Inquiry on James O'Brien
Hi Shane,

I have a question James O'Brien. The 2nd LT buried in OH. It listed you as creator. In description it said he was captured and killed by the Japanese. I am wondering where did you get this information. Was it from the POW record? I could not find anything on NARA. The reason I am asking is because my great uncle Junius D Jenkins was on the same plane and he was listed as MIA. I am trying to find more about him. Was it an engine failure? Or was it shot down? Do you by chance have more information about James O'Brien, and that will help find what happened to the rest of his crews. My grandpa wrote in his journal that someone told him the plane was crashed 80 miles inland. On the website it says it was lost at sea.

If we can find which camp he was at, maybe he had told the story about the plane to some other POWs who survived from the war.

Thank you in advance for your help! I really appreciate all your effort in doing this!

Thanks again,

Kevin

I've added a new VC called "Added for March 1945."

Not all entries are for March 1945 but most are. You can look and select any you want to add to yours. About the middle of next month I will change it to the next corresponding month and add new names...

Re: Gregory Regnier
I received an edit request from you to remove the memorial for my uncle. He was buried in Belgium during the war and we have records that verify that. If you will notice, on his memorial there is a note indicating that he was removed and interred at his final resting place and the memorial that documents that grave. I do not intend to remove either of the memorials. He was buried in each place and deserves a place in both. Thank you for you suggestion, but it is important to us, his family, that where he rested is honored as well as he, himself.
